    welcome aboard.

    A lot of hard work, money and effort gone into that car so you've bought a good one!

    A few bits have been ordered to help improve the car as while I was enjoying my self it was lacking.

    So new diff Gripper with custom settings to my liking

    New brake fluid as it has some dot5 in we always run rbf660 for 4 as find this improves feel ( the pads in it are not great but will live with these untill competition starts)

    Camber and toe shims to set rear beam up to get the car moving a bit

    Geometry set up get some camber in to the car and again get her toeing out a bit so the car wants to turn in.

    Finally new tyres we will be using Pirelli trofeo r while these are not my favorite tyre these are what we will be using due to regs 2018 so may as ell get the car on them.

    We are next out at brands on the 25th.

    Still got a lot to do, new livery is being done but this will not be revealed until 2018, we are testing in a couple of weeks the geometry set up we have dialed in will make it very very lively so will be interesting to see how it goes.

    testing at brands 25th if anyone fancies coming.

    Yes we are planning uk time attack 2018.
